I think she tells a story like this herself on one of the recent DVD's either Windsor or Monarchy. I love it when we get to hear Her Majesty tell stories, it adds a whole layer of personality and humor.

As often as I've seen pictures of Princess Marina, I didn't recognize her in that photo. The man in front of her looks familiar as well, but I have no idea who he is.

Someone on another board suggested that it's Philip's uncle, David Milford Haven.

The man in front of Marina is the Earl of Athlone and the man behind Prince Phillip is his best man the Marquess of Milford Haven.
